Rivers of an Unknown Land
A Whitewater Guide to Former Soviet Union.
One-sixth of the earth’s land. That’s what the adventurous traveler will find in the countries of the former Soviet Union. The variety of paddling expériences here is astonishing. Glacier-fed rivers coursing down from towering moutain ranges. High-volume rivers as big as the Grand Canyon of Colorado. Tight, technical runs like those in Latin America. And intermediate-level trips for paddlers to hone their skills while satisfying their thirst for a foreign adventure.
Loaded with color and black-and-white photos, the guide features detailed maps, rapid-by-rapide descriptions, travel advice, and notes on local color and custom.
